sitting trannsmission

was wondering my spare transmission has been sitting for at least 3 years. it has fluid in it. is there anything that I should replace before installing it. Like orings and seals.

i cant say i know the history other than what was told to me by the person that i bought it from.
the story goes that this guys father-in-law passed away and he and his wife inherited his stuff. the father in law had wrecked his 99.5 f250 superduty and totaled it. the body was so bad that he decided to just part it out. he decide to keep the motor and transmission. the tranny was supposedly rebuilt about 9000 miles before the wreck. the tranny looks brand new,very clean, the pump in the bell housing has a fresh coat of black paint. the torque converter is still attached to the back of the motor and looks brand new as well. i just was wondering if anyone has any experience with having a tranny sit that long?

I'll be watching for replys on this... I also have a spare trans sitting around waiting for my work van to need it... and has been about as long, though I don't need it yet. So it's gonna keep sitting, but would be good to know what I should do when it goes in... hope someone has some good feed back for us...

It should be fine, it may take some time for the fluid to pump up but I see no problem in just putting it in, changing the fluid and using it.
